"Citizens of Paris! Frollo has persecuted our people, ransacked our city. And now he has declared war on Notre Dame herself! Will we allow it?" -Phoebus, The Hunchback of Notre Dame

C H A L L E N G E
The date April 15, 2019 is forever burned into the hearts and memories of millions worldwide. Everyone was left in disbelief when a fire broke out and consumed the roof of the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. The falling of the spire brought tears and heartbreak to not only the citizens of Paris but to the entire world. Now that we know the cathedral is safe, and numerous people have donated money to repair it, we can all breathe a sigh of relief that this historical building has not been lost.

But that is just the Muggle side - what about the magical side of things? This month, A&G is challenging you to write about the magical world in the aftermath of the Notre-Dame fire. We would like to see how France's Ministry of Magic is reaching out to help their Muggle counterparts in repairing and rebuilding the cathedral. How are they going to cover up any magical help?

R E Q U I R E M E N T S
+ This is a prose prompt.
+ Must be about the French Ministry of Magic offering to help rebuild/repair Notre-Dame Cathedral.
+ Entries must be at least 500 words long, but must not exceed 1,500 words.

A (perhaps silly) clarification:

Quote:
Must be about the French Ministry of Magic offering to help rebuild/repair Notre-Dame Cathedral.


Do we have to include the offer of help or some kind of interaction between the MoM and the French (Muggle) Government? Or can we focus on what the Ministry is doing?

You can have either, just as long as you have the French MoM offering to help.
